Kylie and Ben’s love story – the beauty of unexpected meetings. In the midst of the pandemic, when everyone was confined to their homes, Kylie and Ben’s paths intertwined through a serendipitous connection. Introduced by mutual friends who were also engaged (Kylie’s college roommate and Ben’s college roommate) they met virtually during a trivia game over Zoom in March 2020. Little did they know that this virtual encounter would pave the way for something extraordinary. As fate would have it, their first planned picnic in the park was thwarted by pouring rain. Undeterred, Kylie and Ben set up a cozy indoor picnic in the living room, with a movie. When the weather cleared, they spent the evening by the firepit in conversation, cementing the connection that had sparked through their virtual interactions.
